Police have arrested 80 drink drivers across Queensland in the past two days as they continue a Christmas crackdown on drivers putting others at risk on our roads.

Since midnight on December 23, 80 drink drivers and 29 drug drivers were detected throughout the state.

Police are continuing traffic operations over the festive period and are urging people drinking during
Christmas celebrations not to get behind the wheel of a vehicle.

More than 5,500 random breath tests have been conducted in the last two days.

The highest reading so far was a 49-year-old man who allegedly returned a breath alcohol concentration of 0.230 per cent, more than four times the legal limit in a residential area in Nambour on Wednesday.

Police have released the below compilation of drink driver intercepts across Queensland since the Christmas Road Safety Campaign commenced on December 9.
